What household or grocery items do you wish you had shipped to post?

Not much, did not even take advantage of our 2500 pound consumables allotment. - Sep 21, 2017
You can get anything through amazon. Just bring a lot of the liquids- like Peanut butter, or your favorite shampoo. You can get everything else here. - Jan 16, 2015
We weren't able to ship anything either time we lived there but it wasn't a problem. I never did find a source for coconut milk, fish sauce, curry paste, or tamarind. There are a couple of small Chinese stores where you can get date/red sugar to use for brown sugar plus your typical Chinese ingredients. The bazaars have a wide variety of food and I shopped almost exclusively at them rather than the few supermarkets. - May 13, 2014
